Quinoa Salad

Quinoa Salad

I love quinoa since it is easy to make like rice but unlike other
grains (it’s actually a seed!), it is a great source of protein and fiber. This gluten free grain also has a low glycemic index which is good for blood sugar control. You can add any veggies you have on hand to this recipe to make a tasty meal.

• 1/3 cup pepper
• 1/3 cup corn

Directions
